Hi there,

Recently a friend wanted to move from blogger to wordpress but he was afraid to do it since after importing Wordpress auto generates the post slugs hence the permalinks change. I hunted around and found a solution. It involves adding just 2 lines of code in the blogger importer. I have blogged about it here

at around line 520. Insert these 2 lines after the call to wp_insert_post;

preg_match("/([^\/]+)\.html$/", $entry->old_permalink ,$matches);
$wpdb->query("UPDATE $wpdb->posts SET post_name = '" . $matches[1] . "' WHERE ID = '$post_id'");
